So glad Prototype received an 8. Well deserved IMO.

Any word on the good/bad concerning ArmA 2 and CoJ 2 at all? Thanks for posting as always.

The usual for Arma 2. Buggy, bogged down in menus, but brilliant. Multi-player especially.

Call of Juarez is COD4 re-skinned in a wild west theme, seemingly let down by clunky weapon reloads and dodgy on-horse sections. Despite that it would appear that CoJ 2 is a better replica of Infinity Ward's game than what Treyarch can manage.

I don't know why people are claiming Call of Juarez BiB is just like Call of Duty. Having played it for several hours now, I've discovered the only similarity is that they're both first-person shooters with a no-health-bar health system. That's it. It's good fun, but it's nothing like COD.

It's worth an 8. Though having said that I've not touched it for almost a week now. -_-
